in terms of ssc:
300m+ = supertall
200m+ = skyscraper
100m+ = high-rise

terms of many other sites:
300m+ = supertall
100-299m = skyscraper
45-100m = high-rise

not just taller but also this one looks much uglier than it actually is.

compared to the pyramid in San Francisco, which looks "prettier" than that one actually is.

^ Too bad there ain't no major tower in Europe with such a design.

Since MessyThang Commieblock ain't nothing but a simple pyramid (just like "the Shard") I would I agree with the both of you on this.
Although I'm somehow being surprised by SO's opinion on this this since I always thought that MessyTrumm was his faved tower in fugly FFM.

@Eduardo L. Ramirez

because it looks too old and outdated which is not wanted by anyone uh? or are you expecting dubai to build the palace of westminster? ok if you want to know my favourite towers in frankfurt, i will tell ya those towers may not very tall,iconic or whatever but i find them nice...

1.Nextower (very innovative, creative and reminds me of a tower in tokyo)
2.Deutsche Bank I&II (they have to stick together like the way they are now, shame they are not very tall)
3.Pollux (nice one)
4.Skyper (cool)
5.Gallileo ( i don't mind these 5 towers to be built in a cluster like canary wharf, but not in the city)


ugliest towers for me -

1.japan centre
2.AfE-Turm
3.Silver Tower
4.Commerzbank Tower
5.the rest

I think it looks rel. timeless, but opinions may differ esp. regarding postmodernism.

Nobody would destroy this one tower in la defense....

and you know that this tower is basically a perfect example of modernism? The cladding is high-quality natural stone.
